Welcome to "Fan the Flame" Friday.

This is a weekly post that will be "short and sweet" (kinda like me...)

Just a word and a phrase, a sentence or a question...just a little something to "fan the flame" of your creativity!

Today's word: triumph

What does the word triumph mean?

How is simply winning different than a triumph?

What is the biggest personal triumph of your life?

The Resurrection changed everything - how has Jesus' triumph on the cross changed the way you live?

Let me know what you think!!

"This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you…For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1:6-7)

  1. Triumph, victorious, conquering. Jesus triumphed on the cross because he conquered so much for us, conquered sin, conquered death. Ultimate victory over everything. Jesus' resurrection gives me hope and security in knowing there is a great life that awaits me for all of eternity! Happy Easter Sharon and family!


  2. Ah, my JESUS! Oh how I love YOU!

    Good Friday to you my friend.

  3. Triumph i what Jesus did, He overcame great obstacles. He conquered death, and the grave.

  4. Triumph! Been a hard few weeks and if you asked me this a week ago I would be hard pressed to feel any identification to the word. But, I can do all things through Christ - so this week, mending along, I am thinking more like I can triumph through Christ - just as He triumphed through the cross. New life was on the other side of the cross - triumph; new life is on the other side of losing a really crummy job - triumph for sure.
    All this making my Resurrection Week meditations deeper and more soul searching . . . changing me into more of His image and will for my life - yes, a triumph, indeed. To God be the Glory. A cost effective job loss.
    Always so timely with your sharing, Sharon . . .
    Bless you this Resurrection Weekend!

  5. Hi Sharon....biggest for me was standing up to my family and not denying my faith. Being Jewish, they wanted me to renounce what I believed even though they saw how much it had changed me. I could never do that. My stand came with a lot of pain...they didn't want me to attend holidays and called me all kinds of names....but it didn't really matter b/c in my heart....His joy spilled over so much and now my older sister calls me all the time and says she sees something in me that she wants. Yeahh. Happy Easter

  6. To triumph is to be victorious. I just read Sarah's comment above. She is such a good example of triumphing.
    Happy Easter.

  7. Sin could not hold it's prey,
    He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord.
    Up from the grave he arose.
    With a mighty triumph o'er his foes
    He arose a victor from the dark domain and he lives forever with his saints to reign. He arose, he arose, Hallelujah, Christ arose!


"So [I] have been greatly encouraged in the midst of [my] troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives [me] new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord. How [I] thank God for you!" (1 Thessalonians 3:7-9)
